Doug Flutie’s Sports Pub features a 37 foot x 9 foot projection wall. Three Christie HD10k projectors are blended to create a seamless viewing area for up to 8 unique video feeds in various user selectable layouts.
The large video projection wall’s layouts and inputs are changed via a CP2 touch screen interface located behind the bar. The intuitive tablet interface also controls overhead audio as well as the TVs.
Twelve Christie Laser Phosphor projectors with vibration dampening mounts surround Flutie’s Sports pub, projecting onto the glass panels positioned between cases of Doug Flutie’s sports memorabilia.
The Heisman Trophy awarded to Doug Flutie in 1984 greets guests as they enter the Pub. With over 30 HD TVs, 12 HD projections on glass and a 37 x 9 foot projection wall above the bar, there is not a bad seat in the house.
Wall mounted EAW QX series full range speakers provide the primary audio for the lounge area. Structural challenges within the walls along with bar service surrounding the stage pushed us to a suspension solution for the EAW SBK250 subwoofers. The overhead speakers throughout the casino are divided into zones based on distance from the stage. The digital processing for these zones has incremental delays which automatically engage when the stage audio is selected as the source, allowing the overhead system to blend with the stage system at any location on the gaming floor without the acoustic latency problems typically associated with this type of distribution. Audio from the stage is fed from an auxiliary buss allowing the engineer to create a mix for the gaming floor separately from the stage reinforcement mix.
A projection surface on the left and right of the stage is capable of displaying 4 unique feeds, 1 large broadcast feed, an in-house marketing feed, or low-latency stage camera feed. In addition, five 75 inch LED TVs line the top of the stage. All video elements are controlled via Control Point’s touch screen interface.
These racks are the backbone of the system’s AV infrastructure. Including twenty-eight 4K tuners, 6 dual channel Drake RF encoders and 11 dual channel Televes RF encoders. A KVM allows users to control the AV PCs, which include: an NWare audio control PC, a CP2 system automation PC, a QAM RF 8 channel solid state video playback PC, and a PC responsible for RF video layouts and scaling for the system’s multiple projection walls. An RF fiber transmitter distributes RF throughout the facility to fiber receivers. The signal is then converted to video over twisted pair and distributed to HD LED TVs where the signal is converted back to RF over Coax. The racks also house 16 DirecTv receivers, an assistive listening system, Mood Media players, a networked audio player, wireless microphone receivers, 3 Nion N6 audio processors, and 10 Lab.Gruppen amplifiers among many other integral pieces of the Audio Video system.
